I'm a two foot driver. One on the gas, one on the brake. I have better reaction time that way. .
I heard somewhere that you actually have better reaction times when you drive one-footed. Seeing as how that'* how they teach it in Driver'* Ed, I can see how that would be valid.

My dad tends to drive with 2 feet, drives me up the wall! I'll make a comment on how he is riding the gas and brake and he'll get all defensive, lol.

So, yeah, 1 foot for me...

I have to agree with the majority. One footed is the way to go because you will move your foot over to the brake by instinct if you feel like you're going to crash. So it doesn't matter, I don't like it when people use two feet because they forget that their foot is resting on the brake pedal and the lights are on (taillights) and the brakes are braking. That will fry the brakes and make it worse to stop.

So one foot unless racing. (legally of course)

Only way to pass the PA driver test is to drive 1 footed

I drive with one foot. When I drive stick it is both then. Driving stick shift gets me into too much trouble. I feel like Mario Andretti and fly through those gears. Vroom!!!

I know people who have failed because they messed up parallel parking. But the PA has to be the easiest state to get your liscense in. I disagree with their system, but I guess someone has to be the worst.
